June Glossybox

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends 5 travel size beauty items a month.  You can sign up monthly for $21/month, 6 months for $115 (breaks down to $19.16/month), or yearly for $220 (breaks down to $18.33/month).  Shipping is included in these prices. The price is higher than a lot of the other beauty companies but they include luxury items in their boxes. The company ships their boxes towards the end of the month so you will receive it at the end of the month or the beginning of the next month.

This subscription is available in the US (not including Alaska or Hawaii), Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. 

The good:

The brands: They have well known quality brands like OPI, Zoya, Burberry, C.O. Bigelow, Ahava, Sebastian and other brands specific to other countries. 

The sizes: They send deluxe size samples and a couple of items were full sized.

The box: I know it's just a box but it's a really nice sturdy box in a nice shade of pink.  The only logo is on the top and it's not very big.  That makes this box perfect for reusing for a gift box. 

Information. They provide information on the products you receive and how much the full size is priced at.  I like knowing this info up front and not having to search for it. 

Free stuff: If you provide feedback on your products you earn Glossydots which will eventually earn you a free box. You have to claim your free box before your subscription ends and becomes inactive. This can be tricky because you don't want to receive duplicate boxes.

The not so good:

The price: This can be a little high for some people but if you want to receive known/quality brands it's worth it. 

How cute is the box this month from Dallas Shaw.

All the goodies in the box.

Oscar de la Renta scents with a cute little bag.

Contents of box w/approximate retail value listed and full size price in parenthesis:

2 oz. c. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist. Value = $4.00

2 oz. Philip B. Detangling Toning Mist. Value = $10.00

FULL SIZE SpaRitual nail polish in Spice of Life. Value = $12.00

FULL SIZE Tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick in Fair to Light. Value = $14.50

6 sample of Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries scents. Value =  $10.00??

The total value of my Glossybox is $50.50. I am very happy with this box. I am almost out of leave in conditioner and I'm guessing the Philip B. detanging mist will be similar. I like dry oil mist and used to use it all the time so I'm loving this. The nail polish is a really pretty color and I like the bottle. The lipstick is interesting since the color is only in the center. It's suppose to help brighten your complexion while adding color to lips. I love the little bag that the Oscar de la Renta scents came in but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet.

Verdict: This months Glossybox had fun stuff in it
